The Quintessential reason - Why Grandpa carries a gun:
Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to "A Little Gun History" about half way down.
Why Carry a Gun?
My old grandpa said to me 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.'
I don't carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed.
I don't carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.
I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.
I don't carry a gun because I'm evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.
I don't carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.
I don't carry a gun because I'm angry. I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
I don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
I don't carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.
Police protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.
Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'.....author unknown (but obviously brilliant)

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.
During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun -control message to all of your friends.
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT'S A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET
Anyone that supports and espouses gun control is someone that is untrustworthy and to be eyed with great suspicion. There is only one legitimate reason for gun control... that being tyranny. It is one I do not agree with and will not abide by.
When a politician says, “I support the 2nd Amendment, but...” he’s just lost my vote. That single word, “But” Tells me everything I need to know. There is no but... If you support the 2nd Amendment, which SHOULD NOT EVEN BE A POLITICAL ISSUE AT ALL, there is no but. You will work to repeal EVERY anti-gun law on the books. This is something that has eluded politicians for far too long.
Any politician that says that line, is not qualified for position as a political representative. He or she uttering that single line tells me that they do not understand the Constitution and cannot therefore honor their oath of office due to ignorance and frankly, utter stupidity.
To the politicians that read this... think hard on that. Real hard.
But guns are eeeeeeevil!
If you believe congress is knowlegable to take away your guns.Please Remember:: These are the same people who have put our ECONOMY IN THE SHAPE IT IS TODAY !!
Grandpa carries a gun because a Policeman is to heavy.
not the first time I’ve heard this, but it’s definitely worth repeating to get the word spread amongst as many as possible.
I support the 2nd Amendment, but...not everybody sees it my way.
I support the 2nd Amendment, but...not everybody sees it my way.
This reminds me of a 1970 GUNS magazine article...”GRANDPA, WHAT WAS A GUN?”
The plot was the Chinese had taken over the US. Americans cowered in their homes unarmed, because of gun control and the little boy asked that question which frightened the grandpa so much he became afraid someone might overhear.
